A Prayer for Patience

God, teach me to be patient--
Teach me to go slow--
Teach me how to 'wait on You'
When my way I do not know...
Teach me sweet forbearance
When things do not go right
So I remain unruffled
When others grow uptight...
Teach me how to quiet
My racing, rising heart
So I may hear the answer
You are trying to impart...
Teach me to LET GO, dear God,
And pray undisturbed until
My heart is filled with inner peace
And I learn to know YOUR WILL!
